Another YA Adaptation Gets Its Cast

‘Vampire Academy’ movie producers announce first string of castings

VA, a young adult series taking place in current time and focusing on Rose Hathaway, a dhampir (half human/half vampire) who finds her time stretched between training to be a guardian for her best friend, Lissa and navigating the ups and downs of first love, has found its leading cast members.

Preger Entertainment (Village of the Damned, The Day of the Triffids), the production company who bought the rights to Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy back in 2010, announced on their official Facebook page today that Zoey Deutch (Beautiful Creatures, Ringer), Lucy Fry (Lightening Point) and Russian actor, Danila Kozlovsky (Gulf Stream Under the Iceberg, Shpion) would be joining the film.

It’s not clear who is playing who, but just from the book descriptions it would seem that Deutch is set to play “Rose”, Fry “Lissa” and Kozlovsky “Dimitri”.

Dan Waters (Heathers) has penned the script and Mark Waters (Mean Girls) will be directing. (They’re brothers!)

VA fans, are you happy with these castings? What were your fan casts?
